Track Name: Inspired Youth
The whole world stretched in front of us
Not limited by our thoughts or time
Believing in something more
So many sleepless nights
Dreaming beyond our boundaries’
Thinking about making an impact,
A difference, a change

Every positive action
Leads to a positive result

A chain reaction, a movement,
Something that comes from the heart

Still inspired, regenerating
A spirit I thought was lost
By those kids continuing
Where others have left off
We see the path
Hoping you that walk on
It gives me hope knowing
Those feelings of youth, they’re not gone!
Track Name: Riptide
Pulling me out to try and drag me further
But what they don't know is that I'm a fighter
I feel the current rush over me
This tide's pulled me out and I'm too deep
Don't sink, don't sink, don't sink
This may be the only chance I get
Keeping my head at the surface
To rise above the rest

The tide gets weaker
The waves get smaller
Don't drown, don't drown


I've seen them come
I've seen them go

In and out
Ebb and flow

Ideals lost
To the undertow

Sunk to the depths
Of the unknown

I won't falter
I won't lost sight

Grabbing on
Holding tight

To the values
I know are right

Not washed away
By envy and spite


Pulling me out to try and drag me further
But what they don't know is that I'm a fighter
I feel the current rush over me
This tide's pulled me out and I'm too deep
Don't sink, don't sink
This may be the only chance we get
Keeping our heads at the surface
We rise above the rest
Track Name: Aperture
Look beyond those narrow views
Expand your lens, see something new
Lost your focus over many years
Those doubts, those fears
What's in front of you
So vivid, so true
Adjust the perspective of those tired views
Everything becomes clearer when you make the choice to...
Look beyond
Widen your view
See something different
The worlds around you
Around you
Everything becomes clearer when you make the choice to...
Reveal it
Track Name: Matter of Taste
Shove it in my face; jam it down your throat
Every bite that you take; the punch line to a sick joke
A misconception left in the past
Selfish ways that would never last
It's a matter of taste

Now i let my actions speak for me
More respect for those sharing the air we breathe
It's not that i'm ignoring what you say
It's just your actions speak so loud it's fucking deafening

It's a matter of taste
It's a matter of taste
Just a matter of taste
It's a matter of taste

Moral progress can't be made
With every life taken in vain
In order to free ourselves
We must feed our minds...
Not an appetite
Track Name: Bait and Switch
Your lies and disloyalty
Only infuriate me
You take advantage of others
I let the cycle repeat
Promise them one thing
Replace it with another
I see you crack a smile
While other people suffer

Now that time is over
I knew it wouldn’t be long
I’m calling you out for all that you are
A liar, A fake
A cheat, A fraud
You may fool others
But I see who you are

Try to deceive me
With all your dishonesty
Two faced trickery
You can’t outwit me
You bait, I switch
Track Name: In Spite of Youth
Struggled with life
Spiteful beginnings

Hard to carry on
Living without much meaning

Shuffled around
Never stayed in one place

Parents that divorced
Family torn and frayed

A latch key kid
On your own to fend

Made some choices
Most would condemn


Broke the rules
Stepped out of line

Made it through
Stronger inside

Picked yourself up
Live for another day

Never let those actions
Confine forward thinking ways


Found this place
Friends like brothers

Couldn’t have survived
If it weren’t for one another


Everyone’s got a past
Grow up in their own way

Try to look ahead
Focus on better days

Push on
Break through

I'm moving
I'm moving on
